To improve access to the Young Endeavour Youth Development Program, we offer a number of financially assisted berths to eligible applicants each year.
Applicants offered a financially assisted berth will be asked to submit supporting information, such as an Income Statement from Centrelink, as proof of your financial circumstances.
To be eligible for financial assistance you must indicate you must check the box in your initial application – you cannot apply after you have been offered a berth.
For further information regarding financial assistance please contact the office on 1800 020 444 or contact us
Got questions? Here are answers to our most common questions about pricing and financial assistance.
I want to sail, how do I apply for a Scholarship?
Our Scholarship program does not work the way it sometimes does for Schools. Business and community groups provide scholarships to candidates of their choosing.
If you meet the criteria for receiving financial assistance, you can apply for a Financially Assisted berth during the application process - but please note that the number of these berths is limited and you will not be considered for full fare berths.
Can I get VET Fee Help for Young Endeavour?
No, We are not an eligible provider for VET Fee Help.

I have been offered a regular berth but I cannot afford it, can I change it to a Financially Assisted berth?
No. To be fair to all applicants we do not allow this. You can refuse the berth and return to the application list for the voyages you have applied for, then email us and we can amend your application to consider you only for financially assisted berths in the future.
